Meeting Management - Wound Clinic Business

The Wound Clinic Business meetings continue to educate professionals across the United States on reimbursement and coding updates needed each year. Since wound management reimbursement continues to evolve, we’ve focused our business on improving theirs. In response to participants’ requests, the 2020 Wound Clinic Business meetings will include interactive reimbursement scenarios focused on:

  • Pertinent new coding, coverage, and payment guidelines
  • How to avoid common reimbursement mistakes
  • Coordination of reimbursement across the continuum of care

These scenarios will pertain to the work of physicians, podiatrists, non-physician practitioners, therapists, and hospital-owned outpatient wound management provider-based departments.
